Taste the original Mediterranean diet
of our ancestors!
Because every word has a story to tell!
What was the most frequent profession of the ancient authors who wrote about food? No, not a gourmand! In fact, many of them were physicians.
Great doctors of Antiquity were interested in food and studied its medicinal properties. Thanks to their descriptions of what a proper diet was, today we have many cooking recipes that turn out to be both incredibly delicious and very healthy.
Do you want to give them a try?
We search in various original Latin and Greek texts and pick recipes of ancient dishes that can be done in a present-day kitchen.
We prepare the food in our house, eat it with our children and comment it. Meantime, we get the whole process into short videos and provide you with a visual step-by-step guide to cooking ancient recipes at home.
Have some fun with us!
